Characters / Crimson Rafflesia

Go To

Sho Reilen

"So if you're expecting some kind of sob story from me about my past, sorry to disappoint you."

The main character, but not necessarily the hero. She is a 16-year-old sadistic little girl with a terrible psychic power which she doesn't hesitate to terrorize people with.


Kaison Voltaire

The other main character of the story, a relatively more... normal individual (at first glance, at least).
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Blue to Sho's Red.
  • The Stoic: To some extent.
  • Sympathetic Murder Backstory: He knowingly killed his twin brother as a child to save a friend. The exact circumstances are unknown as of the demo, as it is only shown in a quick flashback, but it was traumatizing for him.

Shirley Primer

A sickly, wheelchair-bound girl whom Kaison meets one day at the hospital.
  • Childhood Friends: With Kaison. The demo hints at it, but doesn't confirm whether or not she really is the same person as ??? (below). If she is, then this holds true.
  • Hair Color Dissonance: Her hair looks dark green, graphics-wise, but the text describes it as "ash-brown".
  • Self-Deprecation: "I'm sorry you have to hear my terrible singing." Yeah, right, Shirley.
    "Self-deprecation has a limit, Shirley Primer." — Kaison
  • Trauma-Induced Amnesia: She completely refuses to talk about what happened to her at Sanchez's Home, claiming that she does not remember. It is uncertain if this is completely true, though.

??? (Little Girl)

Kaison's childhood friend with a mischievous, impish personality.

Erik Faraday

Sho's employer, a wannabe politician in his early twenties.

Layner Kaelan

A young, energetic, 17-year-old boy who works at a coffee shop. He is hilarious, but is apparently hiding something.

Aurelia Primer

An elegant priestess lady from the Temple of Holy Light - which also happens to be a notorious rebel base. She is also Shirley's older sister.
  • Cool Big Sis: To Shirley.
  • Hair Decorations: Instead of making her look childish the ribbons give her a more ladylike feel.
  • Heroes Want Redheads: At least so far, players consider it highly likely for Kaison to end up with Aurelia.
  • Hime Cut: The elegant priestess lady wears her hair in this style emphasize her status and feminine charm.
  • La Résistance: Works for one.

Mikaela Lane

Kaison's friend who was killed by Sho a year ago.

Chloe Goldstein

The only daughter of the Goldstein family, who seems to have a past with both Sho and Heath Perrison.

Henry Lenore

Chloe's servant, a trusted servant of her father's.

Iris Lenore

Chloe's personal attendant, and Henry's sister.

Larsen Yew

An 8-year-old boy from a posh private high school in a nearby country who is on an exchange program. He frequently gives his friends and teachers the slip to visit Layner's coffee shop.
  • Catchphrase: "I'm not a dwarf, I'm a prefect!" followed by Layner going "And those two are mutually exclusive, why?"

Yao Chunqian

A little girl from a nearby country who is on a trip with her uncle. Both Sho and Kaison first meet her at the Temple of Holy Light, in separate instances.
  • Anime Chinese Girl: Downplayed. Wears a Chinese-styled blouse and puts her hair in braids, but doesn't tend to have the typical personality of a Chinese girl in anime.
  • Hair Color Dissonance: Her hair looks the exact same shade of dark teal as Kaison's, but the narration repeatedly states that it is black.
  • Raven Hair, Ivory Skin: She is said to have a doll-like beauty, accentuated by her dark hair and pale skin.
  • Temporal Theme Naming: Her given name means "before spring" in Chinese. It is unknown whether or not this is significant, but given that the creator is Chinese and that Chunqian is one of the major characters in the upcoming sequel "Solace in the Snow Fog", it probably is.

Flora Lane

A blond girl from Sho's childhood. Not much is known about her so far.
